What a lovely hotel, clean, bright and very quiet. Although it is a little out of the centre we were able to walk into the city in around 25 minutes. #34 bus which is a couple of minutes walk from the hotel drops you just around the corner from the Train Station. Breakfast was wonderful, hot food, cold food, cereals,... More

Spent two nights here in the middle of March and had a wonderful time. The room was well sized, modern and very clean. Our door had a measuring tape on it and the names of people's different heights next to it - I thought this was a lovely and unique little feature! The staff were friendly and approachable, as were... More

They had a set menu for the group, consisting of: onion soup, fish with some potato and mustard mash and vanila ice cream with watermelon. They provided white and red wine and also... More

Fine hotel for a stay in Oslo. Staff very welcoming, breakfast good, location good. Rooms were great, only thing is the temperature kept resetting itself to 22 degrees, quickly solved by the helpfull staff though. Would return here for another stay.

located in grunerlokka neighbourhood, it is a great option with a good quality/price rate. Right beside you have the Mathallen dining place with lots of options. Service is really helpful, changed our rooms several times after asking them

Just returned from a two night stay on our first visit to Oslo. Loved the bohemian feel to this place. Room met our needs. Two single beds rather than a double (hence 4 stars rather than 5) but often the case abroad. Beds were comfy. Nice view. Staff were OK. We weren't told to use the room card in the... More

The hotel is very conveniently located. Rooms are not big or fancy but they are decent. The hotel staff was very helpful. If you are not going to spend too much time in the room and want to explore the city, this would be a good choice given a good value.

The Scandic Vulkan is the hotel I tend to stay in when I am in Oslo and don't want to directly in centre of town. The large reception has a bohemian feeling about it, The rooms are all clean and tidy and the internet as always with Scandic is easily accessible and of course without charge. If you don't want...
